"Hapticity architects were engaged in 2020 by a historic client to renovate an Edwardian Terrace his son had recently purchased in London. They were keen to maximise the longevity of the property for the son’s growing family. This meant exploring the feasibility of extending the small basement into one that stretches under the existing house and which has provided the possibility of a self-contained apartment but will be used as a gym, snug and sauna. Above ground, a rear and side extension has created a large family-friendly light living space. The young couple were keen to embrace colour and pattern, Haptic living the interior design service arm of hapticity Architects provided services to accomplish this. The result is a functional but lively home. Hapticity Architects and Haptic living delivered the project from inception to completion."
